Elmbridge Borough Council employs experienced and professional Building Control Officers to deal with your application who between them have a wealth of local knowledge. Our officers spend a considerable amount of time checking your plans, advising on how to comply with the regulations and in particular, carrying out regular site inspection visits.
Remember that the charge is fixed no matter how difficult your application may be to deal with and covers you for as many inspection visits as the Building Control Officer feels necessary – be that 1 or 100. We are easy to contact, give expert advice and respond the same day for inspection requests received before 10am – few other organisations can offer that level of service. If you compare our charges with those of calling out a professional surveyor just once or twice I hope you will agree that they are, in fact, more reasonable than perhaps they first appear.
